Fading Memories (Famous Last Words)

Cook it up just to numb the pain Pull the belt in a search to find my last vein Like a felon in for life I’m wasting away It’s the only thing in life that keeps my mind sane But was it worth the consequences? It numbs the hurt, it numbs the pain Cause in the end I lost a friend who died in vain I could never get enough to heal the pain It all went wrong, he was left defenseless He should not have died, it should be me But now I see that if I believed in something We’d be alive, but now we’re nothing But it made me feel It set me free It cloaked the pain that tortured me It made me blind I couldn’t see The only one to blame was me It was my selfish lies that caused the end of his life And now he’s gone and so are we We’re all just fading memories Destined to fail Sink back as the drugs take way Through my veins I feel my life begin to fade What’s done is done and it ain’t ever gonna change It’s the only thing in life that keeps me sane My skin turns pale as the drugs destroy my soul within It’s poison, complete, bittersweet, defeat I’ll never win I’ll give in. let go of the life I wish I never began This man is sick so I ask myself, well what if I believed in something We’d be alive, but now we’re nothing Destined to fail I’m falling faster Gaining speed to a fate I can’t believe I’m a disaster A one-way ticket to hell made just for me I’m sorry mother I’m not the man that you thought that I would be Now it’s all over Hell’s awaiting me
